This tentative map is based on our own research. It may have limited data on Canada and/or Mexico, and there is some subjectivity in our assignment of plants as introduced vs. expanded. Read more in this blog post.

This plant belongs to a group of plants where there is both considerable taxonomic uncertainty, and uncertainty about the original native range. We derived this map from BONAP's map, but it is best taken with a grain of salt; BONAP marks the Arkansas reports dubious. POWO lumps this species in with other taxa and reports a much larger native range for the total taxon.
